what? both iowa and wisconsin we've also heard that romney poll watcher volunteers were given misinformation about what kind of i.d. you need to have when you go to vote. they will actually be doing the job incorrectly when they get there. it's all a coincidence though, martin. i don't want to you think there's any kind of, you know, right wing conspiracy to any of that. >> i feel -- listening to karen finney i just feel better. but i do think this is bigger than this election. this is the oldest battle in american democracy. if you define democracy as everyone being able to technically vote, we are a very young democracy from just the civil rights era. if you define it as being able to vote without barriers, it's still indanger. >> i wish we had more time. stay with us. much more ahead. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. much more ahead. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-dai

rasmussen tracking poll shows governor romney and president obama in a dead heat tied right at 48-48. there you have it. we're now just what, four days before the election and still no one has a really clear idea who is going to win. i've got an opinion, but nobody has a clear opinion in the mass of the public. fox news though has pointed out three numbers that could favor mitt romney. first, favorability, despite millions of dollars worth of negative ads and romney is polling around 50% in terms of likability. early voting, this is a good indicator of voter enthusiasm and romney has gotten half of early votes accord to go pew research. half of them and independents, latest poll shows romney 7% lead among independent voters. what do you say, monica. >> that independent number is significant and may actually climb. when you look at independent voting going on now, early voting and polling among independents, in the swing states. romney is leading obama by 7 in ohio, and a whopping 21 among independents in virginia and 5 among independents in florida. now, some of those numbers may
, that same polling average has mitt romney ahead by 0.5 points, and in north carolina, the polling average has mr. romney ahead by 3.8 points. so that's the 7:00 hour. and then in the 8:00 hour, polls will be closing in these 18 states. of these states, again, there will be three that we're going to be watching most closely. florida, pennsylvania, and new hampshire. the "real clear politics" polling average right now in florida has romney ahead. in pennsylvania the polling average says it is president obama who's ahead by 4.6 points. in new hampshire, again, president obama ahead with a 1.3 lead. that's the 8:00 hour. at 9:00, we'll have polls closed in all those places, and the blinking states here will be the ones that are closing. 14 states mostly in the midwest and the south. of the -- southwest, excuse me. of these 14 states, the states everybody's going to be watching are three. colorado, michigan, and wisconsin. here's what it looks like right now in those states. polling average in the state of colorado, it's very close. president obama ahead by less than a point. in michigan, it's
ground state polls edge to the president. >> mitt romney has about 48 adjust that. >> ohioan not be able to escape the political spotlight. president obama will be here day until the election day. >> of course, abc 7 is your for the most up-to-date information. with oure speaking partners at politico about what jobs report mean for president obama and mitt romney. >> the presidential race is just several big items on ballot in maryland. the final day for early in maryland. we are at a polling site in landover. last day of early voting in maryland. see the peopllined up .ehind you you can see this very long at this learning center. this is what people are having endure on this last day of voting. of these people got here this center opened at 8:00 in the morning. far, 1000 people have cast their ballots. statewide, records are being set .votingly 8% of eligible voters in the maryland have taken this early voting opportunity. as longhey are waiting four hours. are just try to make the best of it. >> i enjoyed it, got to meet some -- got to make some new friends. not trade experience for th
you take ohio and the times shows romney behind by 5 and the poll's at least 8 points off, that shows romney ahead by 3. and then, their voters are about 10 points less likely to show up than romney's voters are. then the undecided goes against the incumbebt. when you put the factors together, you are probably looking the a 4, 5 or 6-point win for romney. >> greta: you either are really right or really wrong. we will find out on tuesday night. i am curious, i suppose the same would apply to wisconsin or colorado or any other states, right? >> yes. they are making turnout assumptions that are just wrong. i think they are going to be proven dramatically wrong on election night. i think this will be apparent. i look forward to coming back on your show with a big, massive "i told you so!" >> greta: we'll roll the tape, i promise that. as a matter of fact, i am keeping a list of people i am going to have to roll tape for. thank you. >> thank you. >> greta: straight ahead, from marine to the commander in chief. senator pat robert,s, the most senior marine in congress. senator roberts is her
romney sees the polls shifting to obama in nevada and not mitt romney. pennsylvania, he is going, and wisconsin we are there, where the polls have narrowed and wisconsin because of paul ryan's addition to the ticket. that is a state they did not expect to have a shot. pennsylvania is a key player if you believe their calendar and spending and decision to go there. it would potentially help out if it went wrong in ohio, the romney campaign still says they are confident they can pull it off in ohio but recognize that president obama got steam there the last couple of days, so, pennsylvania could be part of a replacement strategy combined, perhaps, with ohio and colorado. ohio is always central to the victory central joy and he is doing a lot of scrambling and it could be a contingency plan but when the polls get this close with a lot of money lying around, spend it. >>shepard: why not. the obama campaign and mike emanuel is with the president near columbus ohio. we her from the president on job creation. how is he going after governor romney today? >>reporter: he says there are sig
to be really troubling to the romney campaign is we're seeing more and more polling in those states and they are not moving in his direction and the president's turnout particularly in ohio has been very strong, very robust. so i think those two states in particular are going to prove and looking at florida and virginia, i still think the president has a very strong chance to win in florida and my home state of virginia as well. i think they could also end up in the blue column. >> well, they have to let everybody vote but i'll get to that later on in the program. alicia, the economic argument where you talked about the jobs numbers and that's what the romney people have to say, well, a lot of that was based on how people felt about the economy. but there's been a huge shift in how people look at the economy when you look at polling, last year this time, only 21% believed the economy would get better the next year. now that number is 45%. last year, 17% thought the economy was headed in the right direction. now 41% believe that. so they are losing the rationale for their argument be
notes that florida is a renewed focus in this election, at this point with polls now a dead heat. romney campaigned in florida, returned wednesday for rallies and tampa, miami and jacksonville. he is expected over the weekend to go back. for obama, victory in florida is a prize. for romney, it is a necessity. debates about whether romney can carry ohio or other midwestern battleground states become moot without a win here, experts say. the "new york times" focuses on pennsylvania and a story a -- and shift, romney a purchase pennsylvania with a new urgency. first there was quiet, then came the super pacs, not the candidate is on his way. in a striking last-minute shift, the romney campaign has decided to invest its most precious resource, the candidate's time in a serious way to win pennsylvania. mr. romney's appearance here on sunday could be a crafty political move to seriously undercut president obama, or could be a sign of desperation. either way is visit represents the biggest jolt yet in a state that has been recently largely ignored. in recent days, polls showing -obama's narrowin
daily abc news/"washington post" polls. tonight, the poll gives mitt romney a one-point edge. so, we asked abc's david muir to tell us his strategy for the final stretch. >> reporter: mitt romney bolting through the battlegrounds. today, on the plane, it was the candidate taking pictures. romney capturing images of his staff sneaking a nap as romney races to the finish. in just the last 24 hours, virginia -- >> virginia, we're going to win on november 6th, i'll tell you that. >> reporter: wisconsin. >> god bless the people of wisconsin. thank you. >> reporter: and tonight, ohio. >> wow, it's good to be back. >> reporter: romney supporters with their own version of that obama rallying cry of "four more years." >> four more days! >> you got that right. >> reporter: and today, romney's closing argument, meant to appeal to the moderate voters, the sliver in the middle that might still be persuadable. promising to work the other party, with this attack aimed at the president. >> he promised he'd have a post-partisan presidency. but it's been the most partisan i've seen, with bitterness an
a president who actually understands job creation. >> our cnn orc poll shows obama at 50 and romney at 48. we begin with one of the hardest hit areas from hurricane sandy, staten island where the death toll continues to rise. with me now is the assemblywoman of new york nicole malliotakis and another resident of staten island, anthony, who rescued his brother from the storm. welcome to you both. >> thank you very much. >> let me start with you, if i may, assemblywoman. this is what the staten island president james molinaro said about the red cross response. he said it's an absolute disgrace. he said he was so infuriated and outraged by the lack of help that you've been receiving. do you endorse what he said? >> well, i think it was a sentiment of frustration this morning because we hadn't had seen a real response here in staten island but we had our senators out here today and i can say that the red cross is on the grounds right now. we have them at certain locations. giving food, giving water. and also our community has been out there collecting donated goods and distributing them out in th
're talking about a 75% likelihood that he's reelected as president. the gallop polls have shown romney had a leg up on the competition. >> what do you make of that? >> you always want to say money speaks louder than the so-called popularity polls. that's why they play the games and we'll know next tuesday night. >> are the guys who essentially wager on this or invest in this pretty reliable in general? >> you know what, these guys are a great indicator. there are a number of things going on as a barometer of truth. they may have taken a position early on romney as a huge underdog and try to bet it back with barack obama. normally you're going to see prices approaching 40 to 50 implies barack obama has a leg up on the competition. >> when a pun did it says it's a toss up, this race, that's not really correct. >> some of the indicators say one thing the odds are saying something substantially different. i'm curious to see what happens when the numbers settle into place. most of these spots will close prices mid-day on tuesday and that should be a real good indication what we'll see later. >>
. the final campaign stop before the polls open on tuesday. romney is in a dead even tie across the country in the national poll. in the battleground state polls though president obama stayed within the margin of error, he is at the high end of it. some congress certain in romney campaign that ohio will be a big struggle. they have to make the ground game work. and the last 72-hour push. to that end, a pew research poll, very, have interesting that says nationally the obama campaign touched 14% of the electorate -- excuse me. 11% of the electorate with either door knocks or phone calls. mr. romney has gotten to 10%. very, very close. battleground, numbers are reversed. romney reached 14% of the likely voters in battleground states casting a ballot on tuesday. obama only got to 13%. they're even in the polls. aapparently they're even even in get out the vote effort. they're down to wire. no indication it will change in five days. >> dana: carl, thank you. we'll go to ed henry, with president obama in las vegas. ed, we have a new nickname for you coined by greg gutfeld. we thought you deseven
is the washington post abc poll, 48.56% obama, 48.49 romney. i mean, literally, negligible and even in the swing states it's too close to call. i don't think that's true. i think it's true on some of the national polls but they are not as relevant as the swing state polls and you're seeing incremental increases every day in favor of the president. so i think, you know, honestly, it's going to be a good day on tuesday for the president and therefore for the country. >> how damaging, kelly ann, was mayor bloomberg's endorsement of president obama? he's been holding off endorsing anybody. he's been well known to be an independent. he came out very strong and said president obama he believes in climate change and mitt romney doesn't. he also attacked mitt romney for where i believe the vulnerability is the endless flip-flopping. it's not a good thing that he endorses a former republican mayor, somebody totally influential, endorses a democratic president. >> he's been a republican and democrat and an independent. so i guess he has the luxury of endorsing anyone. i thought it was an unnecessary endor
state's 29 electoral votes key to mitt romney's hopes. in ohio, that same poll shows president obama also up only 2 but two percentage points. 47% to 45%. in wisconsin where the president started his post-hurricane campaign today an abc news "wall street journal" maris poll has him up 49 to 46%. but governor romney is leading in colorado which is another state president obama visited today. the lead there is just one point, 47% to 46%. that's according to reuters ipso. back with us our three political junkies extraordinaire. pollster david herman, joe garifoli. from all of the polls, there were 29 polls that came out. you are the pollster. this momentum, is it baked in? >> the advantage obama has is baked in inn a lot of the states. i would be shocked to see romney take ohio. and if he can't take ohio, it is really hard to see what his path is. >> jennifer: virginia? >> i think obama takes virginia as well and i think he does it thanks to latino and asian voters. >> jennifer: interesting. he takes iowa
poll conducted in recent months. the romney campaign is telling us it believes it can overcome that on election day with more intensity and more energy from the republican base. we'll see. as you know, wolf, no republican has ever won without this state. the romney campaign concedes it very much needs it. >> there's been a lot of speculation on the provisional ballots available in ohio that that could delay the outcome in that state. what's the latest you're getting on that? >> reporter: there is a possibility. this is a state where you have early voting. and you also have other provisional ballots. ballots that are contested. some will be set aside and disputed. look, let's hope with citizens that doesn't happen. but this state and other states are very close that both campaigns have teams of lawyers not only will be here on election day to watch, they have observers, but teams of lawyers ready to be in place so close would there be an automatic recount triggered. that is a possibility as we head into the final days and final weekend, wolf. not only the candidates out and busy
much stabilized with a tie or narrow romney lead in the polls and this steady persistence lagged. and if you look at the tracking polls this week, maybe there has been a tiny bit of movement toward the president, but maybe just statistical noise. my instinct is that ultimately, where the race was a week ago is probably where it will end up and as big a story as the hurricane has been, it isn't a story that tells us something new about one of the candidates and the way that they -- say, george w. bush's famous dui story came out just before the 2000 race did. i think you will hear a lot of romney people blame the storm if he loses, but i tend to think that where we were before the storm is where we'll end up. >> i have to leave with you this tweet. ricky gervais tweeted. just arrived back at my new york home. still the greatest city in the world. f you, sandy. welcome back, ricky. and you have given everyone at home a bit of a smile. back after the break. those surprising little things she does still make you take notice. there are a million reasons why. but your erectile dysfunct
